Sparks arcing from rear of tv

While the tv was on it just started arcing out of the rear lower right rear of the tv (looking from the front), opposite side of the plug. I was told it was a high voltage transformer? it has two adjustment ports on the back, one says focus, its a square box with two leads out the top and has a large magnet around it, there is a small hole in the side, looks burnt, and when you plug it in it arcs to the magnet. I was told 600.00+ but they really want to sell me a new set. Any help?

Re: sparks arcing from rear of tv

Wow they are charging you alot for this repair my friend. Go to this link and you will see! The High Voltage transformer, also known as a flyback only cost 50.00 Bucks! I would get the part and let someone replace it If you have no soldering and or TV repair experience, as this is a dangerous place to be experimenting with if you do not know the safety issues involved. Good Luck Please dont forget to rate this thread.

Cracks and pops when turned on and will flash light across screen at times.

That could be a number of things that would make that noise, Have you removed the front panel screen in front on bottom and try turn TV on Look for Spark? Bad anode button on one of the tubes can cause that, bad flyback transfomer.Have you removed back and look to see if arc is coming from the FBT Mounted on Deflection board. First board on the left is the deflection board.

Arc in projection TV

A lot of TV's using CRT tubes have SPARK GAPS, usually on the back of the socket boards. These sometimes arc. None should continue to arc. One snap and that is it...

Sony rear projection screen is red then tv shuts off

Can be 1 of 2 things. 1st the red tube just needs the voltage to it turned down. In the front of TV (you have to remove the lower front half of TV to access it) is a plastic square with 6 knobs. The from left to right top knobs control focus for blue,green red. The bottom knobs control voltage to each tube in same order (so lower right knob for red) turn SLOWLY to left to reduce voltage until excessive red and lines go away. If you over turn left or right set will turn off. If that does not fix it or if lines reappear then option 2 is that red picture tube is failing outright and needs replacement.

Green arcs from bottom up with darkest one at bottom on dark screens

there is a way to get rid of the lines, you need to enter a code from your remote to access a hidden menu. From there you can adjust the lasers in the tv(green lines)I beleive it is very sensitive though, if done wrong can reck the tv. Not sure of the code or directions on how to exactly adjust the lasers, actually looking for them my self. Hope i was some help though!
